Great Getaway

Our stay was truly enjoyable.It was immaculate,comfortable,and we spent most of our time sitting on the patio and enjoying the gorgeous view. The proximity to the beach was perfect..just a matter of a few steps to the sand...and we took advantage of the lovely pool area at Palm Bay as well as use of the paddle boat and other equipment which was included in the rental. We would definitely return and want to thank our terrific hostess who was extremely helpful in every way.

Villa 30 the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We found Villa 30 to be a perfect place to stay, ie, it is well represented in the online photos, it is clean and well stocked, and it is convenient to the best parts of the island. It is great for kids, as we had a 3 and 6 year old with us and they loved the little beach in front of the villa and the pool you see in the pics.
I would recommend a rental car as the Hideaways shuttle is reliable but only runs every 2 hours on the hour, exactly when Elvis' water taxi leaves for Stocking Island. This causes lots of waiting in town for the taxi, or waiting in town after a supermarket run to get back to the villa.
Jolly Hall was a 5 minute walk and beautiful. Stocking Island was great, with the Atlantic side a must with kids as it has some great dunes to climb and waves to bodysurf.
One aside, beware that it may be a bit windy, as it is a sailboating destination. This can take the edge off the hotter days, so it is bittersweet.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review villa 30 and share your experience with other guests. I hope your family memories of Christmas in Exuma will bring you back again.

Everything you need for a fabulous holiday in the Bahamas!

We spent a week at Kathy and Fred's Villa in November 2013 and had a fabulous time! We went with our 11-month-old son, and the place was perfect for our little family. The condo is very well equipped - it had everything we would have had there if it was our very own place. We loved it because we were able to enjoy the spectacular view right from the front porch or even sit right on the beach while our son was napping during the day. A very short walk up the beach is another really amazing beach with perfect white sand, some trees for shade and shallow warm water - perfect for afternoons at the beach with our little guy! The folks at the front desk at the resort was very nice and the resort was clean and well-run. Just up the beach is a great restaurant/bar called Latitudes right on the water with music and dancing on Friday night - fun!!! Also, not to be missed is the delicious (albeit deep-fried!) food at the Fish Fry - a short 10 minute walk from the Villa. We had never been to the Bahamas before, and we were very happy with our choice of Exuma Island, and of this Villa. The water looks just like the postcards... gorgeous! We would highly recommend the Villa to anyone looking for a great vacation in the Bahamas!

This location was so perfect for us. Great service and communication from the owners, property management and hotel. They helped us with all sorts of requests, plans and recommendations. The restaurants and fish fry close by are excellent. As travelers without a car, the complimentary shuttle into town was huge. There was an amazing beach- Jolly Hall- right next to us. We loved Exuma and the condo and we will definitely be back! Perfect, relaxing vacation!

A Gloriously Relaxing Holiday!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 4, 2013

Our 2 week vacation in Exuma was gloriously relaxing. The cays are beautiful in themselves but to have the white powdery sand and incredible warm turquiose water only a few steps away from our patio was truly amazing!
Our villa at Palm Bay was our "home away from home". Even though our hosts, Kathy and Fred were not there, we felt their welcome the moment we stepped through the door. They have made it their quest to make sure their guests are happy and comfortable. The villa is nicely appointed and well-equipped and so user-friendly - even down to the beach toys, photo albums, reading materials and tips on where to go and what to eat! It was all there to make our hiatus away from the chaos of that other world, extra special. There is so much to make us want to return and...WE WILL!

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you were comfortable in Villa 30! It sounds as though you made the most of your time exploring Exuma but left a few things for your next visit. Enjoy your sunny memories!
